Exhibit 27.17


* Octopus 14 is now live and it's all long poems. It's amazing how this continues to be a journal that feels new every time out. This is from Jennifer Denrow's "The Personal History of Wind":

The people come from themselves. They’re the operations they couldn’t afford. On the other side of the room, they are dressed like clouds. We give them the personal history of wind. When it gets too loud, we shut the door and never go back. The room sits empty for months, filling up with the sound of each drama. We stop imagining what’s happening in the room, and later forget there was ever a room to begin with. Our participation in each other still occurs, but slowly, forgetfully.

* I don't know if I've mentioned it here, but Chris Higgs's novel The Complete Works of Marvin K. Mooney is now officially out. If you haven't already, pick it up right here.

* No link, but I just wanted to let you know that my first two picks in fantasy football were Shonn Greene and Ryan Matthews. My team is terrible. You shouldn't like me.

* Enjoyed this post by Erin Belieu titled "I Was a Teenage Poetry Bride." It's actually pretty surreal how often this still happens.

* I think I only wanted Shonn Greene because I wouldn't have been able to spell either half of his name correctly on the first try.

* We don't actually have copies quite yet, but we have updated the website for The Cupboard's next volume: Explanations by Andrew Borgstrom. Believe me, I'll post the full announcement, but feel free to check it out, pre-order, etc. Todd did a fantastic job with the cover we all think:

How is it possible that you wrote this this morning? You're freaking me out, Stock Photography. I'm starting to think Adam Peterson doesn't really write these posts. If he did, they'd all be pictures of doughnuts with captions that said "DOUGHNUTS."
